This only goes to show how impressive it is that one console can sell this well.

It's crazy how even with these charts, there are people on this site that thinknPS4 has already peaked, and won't even break 100 million. Proof is in the pudding; I think this proves PS4 is gonna break 130 million easily.

While I agree that 100 million is guaranteed, how does this chart prove anything? 360 and PS3 had the two latest peaks of any console, and they're still ahead of PS4. For the next few years, 360+PS3 sold 23 million, 24 million, 28 million, 26 million, 19 million. PS4 isn't beating 130 million "easily".

If PS5 is coming 2019 I don't see PS4 is hitting 130 million easily...

We don't know that PS5 is coming in 2019. I think Pachter's most recent prediction is spot on: PS5 will come in 2020, and Pro will become the base model PS4/ be a low end model for PS5.

It would be quite hard for PS4 to keep ahead of it, but now it basically explains why we still hear that PS4+X1 vs PS3+X360 is still ahead (PS4 do it almost by itself), and PS4 is again regaining some ground...
Have anyone noticed MS stopped talking about X1 being ahead of X360? Have we done any comparison?

The first chart is PS360 lead, and the value is -8 million. That's not right is it?
